Introducing the Temple Sinai

Jewish Movie Club

Temple Sinai is starting a monthly Movie Club much like a Book Club in which you watch the movies at your convenience and then we come together to review and discuss them. Join us!

Let Rose or Elaine Pinchuk know that you have signed up for Chai Flicks and we will send you a reminder for Movie Club Nights.

See this movie on Chai Flicks, a new streaming service dedicated to Jewish cinema with over 150 Jewish and Israeli movies only seen at the Jewish Film Festivals. It’s like a Jewish Netflix.

Tuesday, January 26 at 7PM: Review of Left Luggage

Isabella Rossellini leads a powerhouse cast in the moving and emotional drama LEFT LUGGAGE, winner of the 1998 Berlin Film Festival! A Jewish philosophy student (Laura Fraser, “Breaking Bad”, ‘Better Call Saul”) accepts a job as a nanny with a Hasidic Jewish family in 1970’s Antwerp, Belgium. She has little knowledge and sympathy for their many centuries-old rules. Through her bond with the family’s five-year old son, she learns to accept and respect a culture steeped in traditions, inspiring her to find the true values of life.
